Family Immigration

Immigration Law has been a controversial as well as complicated topic that is often one of the top issues debated nationwide. Navigating your way through the rules, regulations and requirements of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (USCIS), the National Visa Center (NVC) or various U.S. consulates worldwide can be a confusing and frustrating process that can take years to resolve. Attorney Lemuel A. Carlos and his team of paralegals at the Law Office of Lemuel A. Carlos in Mesa, AZ possess an in-depth understanding of the intricacies of immigration law and can provide the legal services and advice that you need whether it be to petition and get a green card for your husband or wife through marriage or just to know what your rights are as an immigrant in the United States.

We handle all types of immigration cases from adjustments of status to Lawful Permanent Resident (obtaining a “green card”) to removal or deportation and complicated citizenship or naturalization issues. We are experts in all of the cutting edge and latest programs available to immigrants including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”), a benefit that helps so-called “Dreamers” or persons brought over to this country as children as well as the latest program announced by President Obama, Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (“DAPA”), a program that to date is on-hold due to a Texas federal judge’s injunction that is still being decided in court by the 5th circuit.

Changes in the law with regard to same-sex marriage have also opened up immigration benefits for LGBT immigrants and beneficiaries from other countries who wish to be petitioned for or sponsored by their same-sex U.S. citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident partner.

We take the confusion out of the entire process and help you every step of the way. We also are able to anticipate any issues that will essentially help shorten the often grueling long period of time for many immigration processes..

We understand our client’s desire to become legal and live, work and stay in the United States legally. We also know that the ultimate goal for most people going through the immigration process is ultimately acquiring U.S. citizenship. With this in mind, the Law Office of Lemuel A. Carlos is your ideal partner in acquiring a green card and ultimately naturalizing or getting U.S. citizenship.

Business Immigration

One of the easiest and surest ways of acquiring Lawful Permanent Residence in the United States is through the EB-5 program or the so-called million dollar visa. This visa is available to investors and their families from overseas who invest $1,000,000.00 in the United States with the eventual goal of creating at least 10 new jobs at the end of 2 years. The amount of investment can be lowered to $ 500,000.00 if the investment is to take place in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA). Call the Law Office of Lemuel A. Carlos to take advantage of this highly specialized and unique area of practice. We charge a flat rate for our services.
